Vats System Keys

Has Someone ever broken into your car?

Every year, thousands of people are victims of car break-ins, many times in which their cars are destroyed and their belongings are stolen from the vehicle. If you have not had to deal with a break-in situation, you should consider yourself lucky. 

Whether you live in a big city or a small town, keep in mind that a break-in is always possible. The best way to prevent someone from breaking into your car is to do everything that you can to deter a criminal from breaking into your car. This is why anti-theft devices are so important. 

What are VATS system keys?

Most cars in this country are equipped with VATS (Vehicle Anti-Theft Systems). A quick way to check to see if you have VATS in your car is to take a look at your car key or fob. 

If you have an anti-theft system on your vehicle, you should be able to tell by light or indicator within your car. In your car, you should be able to see a blinking light on your dashboard, which serves as an indicator of whether your anti-theft system is engaged or disengaged. 

VATS system keys are keys that have a button on them that gives them the ability to activate or deactivate the anti-theft system with the push of the button. 

More importantly, VATS system keys have built-in resistors that are recognized by the electrical current of your vehicle. 

The computer chip in your car is able to recognize the amount of resistance in your car key. If the resistor drops the cars electrical current lower or bumps it higher than it is supposed to, the car will not start. If the resistance in the key matches the current of your car, it will send a message to your car’s computer that this is the correct key and the car will start. 

Why they are important?

The way that these keys are designed makes them incredibly effective for preventing your car from getting stolen or broken into. The challenge that VATS system keys present is that they can be difficult to repair, replace, cut, and program.
